Connor Humphreys said he had an outstanding visit to Arizona State for its junior day this past weekend but he didn't get an offer so he's not sure yet how serious he can take the Sun Devils.
If Arizona State offered the Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic four-star defensive end, though, it would move way up his list.
"I'm not sure if I'm going to be serious with them because they didn't offer me but one of the coaches is coming up to talk to me so you never know," Humphreys said.

"If they did offer they'd definitely be one of my top three schools. They'd be one of the hats on the table come decision day."
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect who shined at the recent Army National Combine in San Antonio said he was thoroughly impressed with the Arizona State coaching staff.
Playing for coach Todd Graham would be a good thing, Humphreys said, and he was impressed with everything the school offered as well.
"I loved it," Humphreys said. "I had a great time. I got a chance to sit down with coach Graham in his office for about 15 minutes and he expressed how he could see me in the program. I really liked that, no other coach has done that for me.
"He said they're graduating 16 defensive players and that I could come in and play as a freshman.
"I think (Graham) had good core beliefs. He was really emphasizing he believes in a good man that has good characteristics and good character to play for him. That's good for a head coach so you never know I could be playing down there."
So far, Oregon State, Wyoming and Portland State have offered Humphreys, who said the Beavers and Boise State stand out most early on. He said Michigan and Florida State have been showing more interest as well.
